There are so many different perfumes, eau de toilettes, colognes and other fragrances that you can buy for men and women from different stores. Sometimes it’s hard to choose between them, as there is so much choice!
Knowing which fragrance to pick for yourself or a loved one mostly comes down to capture the spirit and personality of the person for which it’s intended. A fragrance can accomplish so much from capturing a certain mood or presence; a person’s scent is something that we usually remember for a long time.
Some fragrances are stronger than others, and top designer perfumes are generally more expensive than others. However, generally speaking if you spend a little extra on a quality perfume then the effect is longer lasting and so you can get more for your money.
If you’re thinking about buying a fragrance for yourself of someone close to you, then you will want to consider your budget as well as the nature of the scent itself. A great place to buy discount perfume online is StrawberryNet.com where you can get special discounts of up to 50% off. As an added plus, StrawberryNet Promotional Codes are usually readily available to help reduce the cost even further!

I wondered about this, thanks for the info. Don't think it would change too much in a year. I don't use perfumes because of allergies, just natural scents from oils in my deodorant so I have no idea but I think scents make lovely presents! Thanks.

I love perfume, I have about 28 bottles of different perfumes. My favorite are the classic's Escape by Calvin Klein and Perry Ellis 360. I like the sandwood smell in perfumes. Versace is also has a nice smell. I look for fragances that will last 8 hours or more. I don't want to tote my perfume in my purse, so whatever I buy I look for the lifespan of the scent.

You've really done some good reasearch here for everyone, great work.
Personally I like Donna Karen's Cashmere Mist, I have to put the body cream on and the perfume for my husband to notice I'm wearing as it has a light aroma.
It's good to see your name again.
Vote up useful and interesting, Joyce.
